It was more than obvious to anyone who saw these photos of Alicia performing at the BBC event in Wales over the weekend. And now major media outlets have gotten their public confirmation from “sources” that yes, Swizz Beats and Alicia Keys are expecting a baby and planning to marry later this year. It was good to hear from Swizz before the word got out, he  sounded very happy and very much in love, but that’s been the case for a while now. Their original wedding plans involved exotic locales and an amazing setting but I wonder if those plans have changed now that A.Keys may be a little bit more motion-sickness prone : ) Either way, this is a big deal for both, and for the extended family too. Since babies are a blessing, I hope that this also enables the adults to get to a peaceful place.
